Broxton to start rehab in Triple-A on Tuesday

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers reliever Jonathan Broxton was originally slated to throw a rehab assignment on Monday.

Instead, he'll have to wait one more day. With Triple-A Albuquerque slated for an afternoon game Monday, Broxton wouldn't have arrived in time, pushing his two rehab appearances to Tuesday and Thursday.

He has been out for a month and a half with a bone bruise in his right elbow.

In other injury news, Rafael Furcal took ground balls at Dodger Stadium on Monday. He is still at least a couple weeks away, but manager Don Mattingly said he is progressing from his left oblique injury.

The switch-hitting shortstop still hasn't taken swings from the left side but has worked a bit batting right-handed.
